Wiki Content[edit | edit source]

WIlma- nice to have time of when a state was formed Giuseppe - title of all our pages, trying to loose "learn" in the URL Tab suggestions - "history" "online vs off line resources" [the green box, ex "Utah Online Records", might be sending the wrong message. Some people might think this is all that is available, when it only sends patron to state records]

to be continued...

(WIlma) Blue template box - Quick links - how about adding "find parents", "where did they live before"? what is most effective, help them with their goals? or how to search?

usability testing might be worthwhile
